SPRINKLER SYSTEMS
UNDERCOVER-SPRINKLERS

Cross section of an Undercover-Sprinkler

Minimax has come up with two different types


of the Undercover-Sprinkler a recessed and
a concealed version. Unlike the concealed
sprinkler with its ne-mesh cover and the
innovative CoverDrop eject mechanism, the
recessed Undercover-Sprinklers head is visible
through the optional ornamental ring. Both
versions are equipped with the suspended quickresponse spray sprinkler, which is a tried and
tested Minimax component. The sprinkler unit
consists of the sprinkler itself, a base plate with
a bayonet socket for attaching the housing,
and a thread sleeve.

The construction is carefully designed down to


the smallest detail and comprises the following
benets:

The patented CoverDrop eject mechanism is


based on two redundant mechanisms.
A prestressed spring, held with soldered
joint under tension, is fasten on the inside of
the ne-mesh cover. When the soldering
materials nominal release temperature is
reached, this being below that of the
sprinklers release temperature, the prestressed spring is unleashed and the nemesh cover is ejected. If, under exceptional
circumstances, the sprinkler should be
triggered before the cover is ejected, the
water released by the sprinkler is enough
to dislodge the screen, thereby
guaranteeing that the water is distributed
evenly in all cases.

Sprinklers from the Minimax Undercover


product range are the perfect solution when
it comes to integrating a re extinguishing
system into a ceiling unobtrusively and
harmoniously. They are exactly what is
required when high aesthetic standards need
to be met in prestigious settings such as luxury
hotel rooms, museums, showrooms of
department stores or ofces.
Architects and clients with a keen eye for
design invariably consider conventional
sprinkler heads and traditional escutcheons
that protrude from the ceiling to be
unattractive and highly conspicuous. Virtually
ush with the ceiling and available in a surface
nish to match your interior design, the
innovative Undercover-Sprinklers open up a
whole host of new interior design opportunities.
In addition, they continue to meet the ofcial
prerequisites for planning permission to be
granted and for premium rebates on re
insurance to be guaranteed.

Office buildings

Installation
Undercover-Sprinklers can be installed wherever there are suspended ceilings (e.g. gypsum
board or AMF ceiling systems) and solid
concrete ceilings (e.g. exposed concrete) with
enough available space for the sprinkler
housings. These are not installed until the
ceiling has been completed and are then seated
ush with the ceiling. The height can then be
adjusted by up to 15 mm.
Undercover-Sprinklers t onto all standard arm
pipes with drops or exible stainless steel
hoses. Once the sprinkler has been installed,
the hydraulic pressure test of the pipe network
can be conducted before the suspended ceiling
is put in place.

Recessed Undercover-Sprinklers

Concealed Undercover-Sprinklers

There are a number of reasons why UndercoverSprinklers are so reliable. For a start, there are
no moving pieces or parts prone to corrosion.
The ornamental ring or the ne-mesh cover
are not positively soldered to the housings, but
are attached magnetically. There are no vent
holes in the Undercover-Sprinklers housings,
and they can therefore not be inadvertently
cooled down by the water from cavity
sprinklers arranged above them.
If you need a concentrated sprinkler
arrangement, the stipulated minimum spacing
between two Undercover-Sprinklers installed
ush with the ceiling can be easily reduced
without having to install bafes, for example.
These sprinklers can even be installed in solid
ceilings with no adverse effect on their
response sensitivity.

We can meet practically any customer


requirement when it comes to the colour of
your sprinklers, even above and beyond the
RAL colours, so that they will harmoniously
blend in to their surroundings.
The sprinkler housings and the suspended
sprinkler come in a highly polished chrome
nish as standard. The ne-mesh cover and
the ornamental ring are available in a choice
of white and highly polished chrome.

Usually, up to half of the release element of a


standard recessed sprinkler protrudes from the
ceiling.

With its ne-mesh cover and innovative


CoverDrop eject mechanism, the Minimax
Undercover-Sprinkler is unique amongst
the known concealed sprinklers.

are currently the only recessed sprinklers


known of to have a sprinkler deector
which is virtually ush with the ceiling.
Consequently, they are often also referred
to as being fully recessed.

 Thanks to CoverDrop, the fact that the

cover unsolders before the sprinkler is


triggered does not have any bearing on
the sprinklers reliability.
 Low response sensitivity of the release

The fact that they are recessed offers the


sprinklers greater protection from being
damaged by external inuences, thus
signicantly reducing the likelihood of water
damage caused by a damaged sprinkler. In
addition, Undercover-Sprinklers are
consequently less prone to soiling.
